Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We present 20 cases of primary intracranial lymphoma and review the most important published series on this subject. The clinical patterns and the differential diagnosis from other intracranial space-occupying lesions on the CT and angiographic evidence are discussed. Surgical treatment was given in 19 of our cases, followed in 17 cases by radiotherapy and in 4 by chemotherapy. One patient was treated by a ventriculo-peritonal shunt. The effectiveness of the various modalities of treatment is discussed in the light of survival.
